Re: HDTV shows artefacts during playback - sfuchs - 10-23-2012

I've got the same problem with a 2.0 Version on a Fusion platform (A 3650 on a ASUS MoBo).
I'm using the VU+ PVR frontend with a Dreambox 8000HD as a backend.

Also tried XBMC on windows (Frodo and the Pulse-Eight build based on Eden) and I never got these artifacts.

I really would like to use OpenElec as the base for my HTPC project, but streaming HDTV without issues is very important for me. How can I support a further investigation on that kind of issue?

I've successfully solved my artifacts in increasing the available RAM for the APU from 256MB to 1GB. Streamed Full HD (1080i) live TV the whole day yesterday without any artifacts or glitches Smile

Unfortunately I can only assign a maximum of 512 MB for video ram in my BIOS.


Re: HDTV shows artefacts during playback - sfuchs - 10-26-2012

OK, perhaps that could be the issue. What kind of Motherboard/APU do you have?


Re: HDTV shows artefacts during playback - LennyX - 10-26-2012

ASRock A75 Pro4-M (FM1), AMD A6-3500, 4GB RAM


Re: HDTV shows artefacts during playback - sfuchs - 10-26-2012

Mh, I'have almost the same setup but with a ASUS A75 Mobo, same APU as you have. Do you have the latest bios installed?


Re: HDTV shows artefacts during playback - LennyX - 10-26-2012

I now and then compile from git, and if it is stable enough, I keep the installation for daily use. First it were pre-2.0 builds, and now I am at the current master branch (with XBMC frodo). The artefacts are there all the time.


Re: HDTV shows artefacts during playback - sfuchs - 10-26-2012

I've installed the official stable version 2.0 for Fusion from the Download Area. You didn't answer my question regarding your BIOS?


Re: HDTV shows artefacts during playback - LennyX - 10-26-2012

BIOS is also up-to-date and at the latest version available from the website.


Re: HDTV shows artefacts during playback - sfuchs - 10-26-2012

Ok, so assigning only 512MB for the APU seems to be a limitation of this board respective BIOS. But I think even 512MB should be enough for stable HD streaming...
